Following our bridge making planning last week, we spent an afternoon working in teams of 2 to build our bridges. Building them was a little tricky but the adults helped us. We used lots of straws, masking tape, Lego and string to build as strong a bridge as possible.
Once we had finished building our bridges, we filled a lid with plastic blocks which we placed on each bridge to see if the bridge was strong enough to hold for 10 seconds without collapsing. Hardly any collapsed, so they were all very well built! Here are some photos of our bridge building afternoon (click images to enlarge):
Everyone enjoyed the bridge competition! Thank you to everyone who came in to help us.
